that would trade places with the united states of america. our problems can be solved in our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place. i am asking you to choose that future. i'm asking you to rally around a set of goals that create new manufacturing jobs here in ohio. that build on what we have already done, to create a new energy strategy for america. building on what we have already done to improve education and break down our -- and turn the page on a decade of war. that is what we can do in the next four years, cincinnati. that is why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] [applause] [chanting] >> now i want everybody to be clear the goals we set our concrete and they are achievable. the first part of the plan is to export more products and outsourced cheaper jobs. after a decade of decline, this country has created a half-million new manufacturing jobs in the last two and half years. a whole lot of them here in ohio. when some of these other folks said we should let detroit go bankru
to the job as president of the united states. you heard in those two phone calls what this is such a divided race. >> two key factors with general elections, one is a money the republican support that will far outspend. but democrats will say that they have a better ground campaign. >> i would rather have more money than less. the democrats had more money in 2008. they bragged about it then and it was a bigger advantage. ground teams are hard to measure until election day. in 2010, the democrats ground teams did not help them much, did they? in 2008, they had a candid but that really captured the heart of the country. both parties really understand how to microtarget people based on things we buy and our past voting and purchasing behavior. they can identify not only who you are, but what specific messages that need to be spoken to you or e-mail to you to get you to move one way or the other on the political spectrum. they know how to find us now. they know where to reach us and they know what to say to us. both parties will have a pretty strong ground game. the fact that republicans have mo

[applause] or, the woman who went on facebook after paul ryan voted to defund planned parenthood and posted, i guess they do not understand us military wives go to planned parenthood when a doctor on base cannot see us. mr. romney and mr. ryan are campaigning for women's vote tby saying women need their help. this is coming from two men who would turn women's health-care decision over to our bosses and who will not even stand up for equal pay for women. my grandmother back in texas would have said, any more help from mitt romney, [unintelligible] here is the good news. we

, the president of united states will address us all and make his case for why he deserves four more years in complete the task, and right the ship. our congressional correspondent is live in the skybox. the vice president that this place fired up and ready for joe. >> you can see why the obama campaign loves joe biden. he is prone to go over times. he delivers the terms -- in term s of hit a lot of points that fire of people in this hall and presumably across the country. >> he did mention repeatedly the fact that the republican presidential nominee did not discuss the troops overseas, dii that has been a talking point for the democrats since the -pconvention began. >> that is correct. you heard him reference barack obama as the commander in chief. he talked as a person who was in the oval office with president obama when tough decisions came what do we do about getting osama bin laden? there are risks involved with that mission. he talked about the automotive industry, which was crumbling before our eyes. president obama had to make a decision about how to handle it. he gave a personal t

. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa
. >> there is not a liberal america and a conservative america. there is the united states of america. >> my god, he's good. >> there is not a black america and a white america and latino america and asian america. it's the united states of america. >> every time barack obama speaks, an angel has an anointed. >> we are the ones we've been waiting for. >> i don't even know what that means, but holy [bleep] i'm feeling it. >> we coach little league in the blue state, and yes, we've got a good friends in the west state. >> now, at the precipice of a new age, one man seems ready enough to lead. one man who will once more unite the world. >> ♪ the circle of life >> barack obama.

between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue
of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. [ cheers and applause ] >> that smile on her face, and we have a camera, our own special camera, watching behind the podium. look what happened. she's going off stage, and there waiting for her is her astronaut husband. there he is, mark kelly, former commander and astronaut. what a hug that was. you know, i had a chance to meet with them earlier today because i spent time with her earlier. i think everyone could see, how hard she's been working, how much stronger she is. >> there was so much determination in her face and so much joy when she finished. giving a lot of joy to this crowd, firing them up right now, much like michele obama did two nights ago, president clinton last night, as character witnesses for barack obama, bringing them inside the white house. bailing out the auto companies and here's account he summed that up. >> ladies and gentlemen, i'm here to tell you, but i think you already know, that i watch it up close. bravery resides in
and his name was barack obama. four years later he is president, he became president of the united states. what are your ambitions? >> well, you know, it is very flattering but i don't put myself in the same league with president obama. >> he is quite a unique talent. i am going to be mayor of san antonio as long as the voters will have me. my tenure would end in 2017 so i will be there and run for reelection and be there, if i do a great job then i will look around and see what is possible, of course the challenge is that we are in texas, texas is very red state, we have 29 statewide offices and it is 29 to zero in terms of republicans and democrats, so we will see. we will see. >> joaquin, part of what we learned in your brother's speech last night was that your grand jury immigrated from mexico. >> right. >> never got past the fourth grade, both of you went to stanford and have law degrees from harvard. how did that happen? you know, our grandmother and everybody in our family worked very hard, so that we could have the very best opportunity possible and, you know, as julian told the s
country. your choice. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. ining us now inrco all of thiweek,nderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our w sws whyhat case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. nesn mitt romney's convention bous. what are the numbers? their convtion tonight, ts let'slook at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy,
of the united states. he will be speak later this will evening introduced by his wife dr. jill biden. then his mentor and friend senator dick durbin will introduce the president of united states for the acceptance speech. this crowd has been on its feet much of evening and the hall is very crowded. the crowd got up as one and roared its ak race for former -- acclamation for former congresswomanwoman gabrielle ge towards of arizona felled by a devastating gun shot to the head. slowly, painstakingly and with her friend debbie wasserman schultz of florida she came to the stage to lead the pledge of allegiance. [cheers and applause] >> i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands one nation under god indif indivisible with liberty and justice for all. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> ifill: that was some moment. >> woodruff: it was. i don't think there were many dry eyes. >> ifill: joining us in the sky box is madeleine albright former secretary of state. welcome. >> very good to be with you. >> ifill: we're having a remarka
the united states ambassador to libya and three other americans. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 47 days to go until the election, the romney campaign's about to roll out another new strategy. voters will be seeing a lot more of mitt romney. in fact, we're only minutes away from his speech at a rally in florida. our national political correspondent jim acosta is joining us now live from sarasota to set the scene. jim, what's going on? >> reporter: wolf, we expect mitt romney to be out here in sarasota, florida, in just a few minutes from now. this is where his advisors say after a relatively light schedule over the last couple weeks, mitt romney and his campaign will be picking up the pace. and after seeming to defend those comments on that hidden camera video on government dependency, romney appears to be shifting again on that message as well looking for something that will stick. after being caught on tape writing off 47% of voters as obama supporters who are dependent on government, mitt romney was checking his math at a candidate's forum with the spanish
to the united states from the other states of the european union over for lunch. okay? germans in the chair, ambassadors from america, from the e.u. states over for lunch. he would then have an american coming in and be the lunchtime entertainment. the american-led come and give the lunchtime talk. i'm not sure who else was there. i would expect the secretary of state was invited, secretary defense. and the central intelligence agency. so i get invited and say okay, i've got a representative from every country in the european union. what makes an interesting speech? i've got it. let's talk about reconditions, interrogations'. so i did. [laughter] and i began the conversation -- i had a great staff at the cia. you are blessed as a people with the talent and morality of the folks in your service and i had a wonderful stuff and great speeches. was rear i would let anybody go with almost irresistible temptation to fool around with someone else's and i would make changes, but this was so important. an awful lot of it i wrote, and i remember page two or page three of the speech, you know, about m
in the united states who have been educated in our schools, to give them the opportunity to stay here. you know, wouldn't we rather be known as a country of dreamers, than a country of illegal aliens? [applause] and as we saw last night, this is the commander in chief who finally brought osama bin laden to justice. [applause] now that is presidential leadership. but even before barack obama was elected president, we knew he was going to be a great leader. we knew it when he chose joe biden as his running mate. [applause] joe was the perfect choice, because like the president, he had lived the american dream, going from humble middle-class roots, to the united states senate, to the vice presidency of the united states. [applause] and we all know from his incredible speech last night that he has been side by side with the president's, fighting to make sure that we open the doors of opportunity for all americans, working to create good jobs and to invest in education, to make health care and retirement and schools affordable for everyone. it is what he has fought for his entire career. [applause]
that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exports. we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. you can make that happen. >> i want to create a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. where no senior figures for their security of their retirement and every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon. and unlike the president, i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. host: has either campaign in specific on how they plan to create 1 million new jobs? politics is not my area, but from what i have followed i have not seen at all specifically this is going to happen. its romney's plan, one of five. is to reduce the deficit. but it is not clear how it leads to more jobs in a direct way. obviously, overall, a strong quake -- stronger economy and reduced debt leads to a better economic environment. but as you cut contractors, teachers, whatever -- anytime government is cutting spending, c
the ascension into the world trade association. she said the united states must normalize trade relations so american business can reap -- speakingrussia's in the new york times, this piece in the weekly review pointing out the democratic party realized one kind of history and it would like to realize another with hillary. it is time for a woman. both conventions there were ghosts of politics past, present, and teacher. next is he larry. caller: i have been watching this for -- ever since it started here. i have been paying close attention throughout my life. my parents were democrats. i have seen them, and i have seen -- i became an independent. i voted for the ban that would best do the job. well, in the last four years i have seen republicans cost the united states a downgrade adventure it's true -- in its credit rating. i have seen them block every opportunity to come to a budget conclusion. i have seen paul ryan and make statements that he knows are false. all through the whole scenario of the last four years. you would know he is lying about fax. as far as mitt romney goes, you're sorr
the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q

[cheers and applause] the way we always do. we'll do it the way we always do, at wendy's. [laughter] whether it's wendy's or washington, i found that it's true. it's not where you go, it's who you go with. [cheers and applause] but none of the things i've mentioned are the reasons i married john edwards. i married him because he was the single most optimistic person that i have ever known. he knew there was a brighter day ahead even as he swept the floors in the cotton mill as a high school student. he knew if he worked hard enough, he could be the first in his family to go to college. he knew that he could outwork and outtough any battalion of lawyers to find justice. and he c
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
of the people of in land of these united states. you have brought us here from every place on earth that native americans and immigrant americans, people of color and of every town might find not just hope, but a land which seeks life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. grant a deep and abiding respect for the task at hand so that our common efforts will perfect our desire that law and government before and by the people assist us to set aside personal differences so that the unity of purpose that we have will rise above us all as a symbol of freedom and let free them so rain in our hearts that we would never fear to lead the oppressed to freedom. never fear to get shelter the the homeless and displaced. never fear to treat our neighbors as ourselves. to give dignity and opportunity in mon-khmer get to the struggling unemployed and less fortunate brothers and sisters. let us never be afraid. while our prayers and assistance with those affected by hurricane isaac, we trust in you that your gracious luck will be with our president barack obama with our vice-president joe biden, with all of ou
is the united states constitution for our viewers that simply means in the confrontation clause that says you have a right to cross- examine people who are saying something against you there are going to be so many other reasons for appeal and it's going to be so interesting for lawyers to watch, not necessarily the general public there are a lot of people who i talked to who said he is guilty he is dead guilty. and yet i was amazed because there were so many other people that i talked to recently said gnocchis not guilty. because you can't possibly convict someone on i heard this and i heard that? >> and amazingly allot of police officers were thinking that what it. two of the much talked to when i was coming into the building tonight. it's something that will tear apart a lot of talk shows in the next couple weeks. i will tell you this much the way the prosecutors put this case in stumbling at the beginning as everyone thought that the way they put in in in used here say the way they were allowed to quizmaster fall and i think they deserve a lot of credit for it but that doesn't get to the
in and see him. him is the president of the united states. he's very much a junior partner. that is the new vice presidency. and that's what's really changed. it began under mondale and was that way to our country -- well, it wasn't so useful under cheney but i think now the vice president is a junior partner. he's explained to barack obama. looking up to him as a smarter guy, perhaps a tougher guy. but certainly with great loyalty. >> ed shultz, we're leading up to the president's speech. what are your impressions there? >> he was trying really hard tonight. he was trying to get as emotionally connected to the audience as he possibly could. it wasn't his smoothest performance, but it was effective. you could tell the crowd was involved. they know this man. they know what he's about. he's a genuine guy. high on sincerity, believable. i thought it was good testimony to the president. >> chris? >> i don't think we've seen that pitch of the president so far. the idea that it's about his judgment and what's in his gut and this kind of undescribable part of his being that can make the right call
-- of our warriors have been wounded. romney thought of the decision of the president of the united states, we have other countries working with us, nato and afghanistan. the president organized it. all 50 of them said it is time to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. what did romney say? he said, that was a mistake. i have seen these warriors. i have traveled in and out of afghanistan and iraq over 20 times. i have seen these kids -- not kids, i have seen these men and women. i have been in the operating base above the mountains and the valley with six kids getting shot at every single night. cold and people off. i have been out there in those armored humvees, the scorching desert. i wish every american could see what i saw on the strips. they raise their right hand with a recruiter and said, i want to join, knowing almost certainly that they would go to iran or afghanistan. -- iran or afghanistan. this is one of the finest generations in the history of america. they should be recognized. and they are.

as president of the united states. [applause] look around you, everyone. this has been the most diverse, most inclusive convention ever held anywhere in the united states of america. [applause] a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriages equality as a basic human right. [applause] and this is the reflection of who we are as a party and who we can be as a nation. because as democrats, as americans, whenever we have opened up our party and our country, whenever we have opened up our doors for more of our people, whenever we deepen our democracy and renew our commitment to equal justice under the law, we have grown stronger as a nation. last week, in tampa, we were promised hard truths. they were right about one thing -- the truth was hard to find. [applause] that is why they did not talk about their plan to cut taxes for millionaires by raising taxes on middle-class families with kids, on your family, by $2,000. they did not talk about their plan to replace the guarantee of medicare with a coupon, with a voucher t

when you're president of the united states. but if there were a word cloud about this speech, the word choice would have been up there a million times. what the president needed to do, and they're hammering it. this is not delicate. they want this election to be a choice between two visions for the country. by the way, i'm the more experienced guy in foreign policy. a lot of osama bin laden tonight. >> there were two great quotes. one was john kerry. ask bin laden if he's better off than four years ago. and joe biden, the familiar trump sky, bin laden dead, general motors alive. the auto industry, they're hammering this now, john. they're going after that crowd so they can hit michigan, ohio, the workers, the car people. >> look, it's an overstatement to say you had a three-day convention and it was about two states. but the president understands the map. if he can keep michigan, and win ohio, which is a toss-up right now, it's almost impossible for governor romney to win when you do the piece by piece 270 electoral map. so what is the criticisms of the president, that he's not fightin
of the united states. >> the election four years ago wasn't about me. it was about you. my fellow citizens, you were the change. if you turn away now, if you turn away now if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn't possible, well... change will not happen. if you give up on the idea your voice can make a difference, then other voices will fill the void. lobbyists and special interests. people with $10 million checks trying to buy this election. those trying to make it harder for you to vote. washington politicians who want to decide who you can marry or control health care choice that's women should be making for themselves. america, i never said this journey would be easy. yes, our path is harder. but it leads to a better chase plais. yes, our road is longer but we travel it together. we don't turn back. we leave no one behind. we pull eachw> other up.ó3qi we draw strength from our victories and we learn from our mistakes but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon knowing promise can s.with us and we're surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on ea
